And Happy International Women’s Day


Hope you are all having a very happy month of March!  Of course, I wish you a joyful St. Patty’s Day with plenty of green beer if you so desire.  However, I’d like to focus on International Women’s Day and a couple of young women in particular.

Check out my interview with Georgina Bloomberg, Equestrian, Philanthropist and Pet Rescuer.  She is making a difference for dogs by finding homes for them at the Winter Equestrian Festival and beyond that.  While she happens to be the daughter of Michael Bloomberg, she’s carving out a new path for herself as an accomplished equestrian with a big heart for all animals.

Also, I interviewed 14-year-old rising country star Alyssa Marie Coon.  Read her story in our “AW Stories of the Month.”  Remember her name because she is going to go far!

International Women’s Day is May 8th, and it’s a great day to celebrate the accomplishments of talented women. Or just send a note of thanks to a woman who has inspired you! 

This month we welcome our new monthly columnist Mike May to our AroundWellington team!  Read “On the Move with Mike” and see why Anna Maria Island is “Paradise Without an Attitude.” 

I’m excited to welcome several new advertisers to our site: Barbuto & Johansson, Injury Lawyers; Total Shredding, LLC; Bruce Elkind, Dentist and Larry’s Limo.  All will be featured in upcoming months in our “AW Spotlight” story, so you can get to know them better.

Wishing you a wonderful month!  If you’re lucky enough to travel for spring break, enjoy!
